Zuma is facing charges of corruption, money laundering and racketeering related to the multi-billion-rand arms deal.


 


He applied for a permanent stay of prosecution earlier this year saying he does not have the financial means to continue with the trial, that he had been prejudiced and suffered reputational damage by unreasonable trial delays and that the case against him was politically motivated.


 


The state opposed the application to dismiss the case.


 


Spokesperson for the National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) in KZN Natasha Kara has confirmed that Zuma will be back in court on Friday.


 


"The NPA has been adviced that the decision in the former president's application for the permanent stay of for the prosecution will be handed down in the Pietermritzaburg High Court on Friday."
